Cook Islands, $50, 1991.  Myles Standish and the Pilgrim Fathers.

Wiki notes:
Quote
A particular Mayflower that has caused historical confusion is a Mayflower erroneously named as the Mayflower of the 1620 Pilgrims. This particular ship was partly owned by John Vassall and was outfitted for Elizabeth I of England in 1588 during the time of the Spanish Armada, a war for which he outfitted several ships. There are no records of this Vassall Mayflower beyond 1594.

The ship on this piece look a lot like like an Elizabethan ship, not like a fluit, which was the type of ship the pilgrims' Mayflower was. I think this is the wrong Mayflower.
